Abstract: We present a proposed standard for data dictionaries associated with catalogs being accessed through the Astrophysics Data System (ADS) Mosaic Catalog Service. Each catalog made available for searching must have a data dictionary, which consists of a set of specified keywords describing format, content and location of data. The data dictionary provides the ability to describe catalogued data accurately, and can be used to facilitate examining data from different sources in a common environment.
